I'd been recommended to visit and wasn't disappointed - interesting building although not too easy to find. They are currently turning the building next door into a visitor centre and it would be good to return once this is completed to see how they've made more of this historic place.

Worth visiting for the grandeur and beautiful interior but as this is a public building and hosts weddings and seminars, etc. it is not always available for viewing. We got lucky and arrived during a tea break in a seminar so got 5 mins to gawk!

This was a very unique building to go through and look at. The history of the place was so interesting to learn.

So many great reasons to go to Our Lord in the Attic. This is a real treasure in Amsterdam and I highly recommend a visit. There is a great audio tour which I always enjoy. The church is beautiful and they do a great job explaining to you how it was used. The tour also takes you through the house... More

we had the place to ourselves which was lovely, the house and church are a fascinating insight into Amsterdam's past. I hope when they've completed the adjoing house that the atmosphere will still be the same,would love to come back when it's finished. Well worth the visit and was one of our highlights.

Using an audio guide which is included in the price you get to walk around the whole house/church learning things in each room. Although there were a lot of people there it didn't seem too busy as there are a lot of rooms for people to go off into and explore. The church itself is very unique due to it's... More

A very special museum in an old church. Never have seen something like this before. It is a bit hard to find though.

This is a 17th Century House Museum that offers a glimpse into a restored Dutch heritage home as well as a preserved Catholic church hidden at the top of the house. The interior is beautifully restored with period furniture and other artifacts and the chapel at the top of the house has also been nicely preserved. It is difficult to... More

Seen from the street no way you would tell that there is a church inside this house. Once inside first there is the regular house, very nice, then on the upper floors there is the church. Brilliant! Loved it! Easy to imagine how it was back then. What they should do is give classical music concerts there during the night,... More
